Well you shouldn't really say that.
Valve is doing much effort on it's part to port as much games as possible.

Till day before yesterday, they were below the final stage. So it is obvious to see less no. of games while Support for Linux just released (officially) yesterday.

Who needs Farcry 3 and Battlefield3 when we have Team Fortress 2? I'M GOING TO SWITCH TO LINUX NOW. (sarcasm).

 

Still good sale though.

Steam games on Linux don't use DirectX. It uses OpenGL instead. So I think we will see more iOS and Android indie games ported to Steam, not the games from big developers like Capcom, DICE, BioWare, Bethesda Game Studio etc.

Pretty much this.

 

Until triple A studios like EA... Activision (god it burns even typing this ><), Bethesda (ok, that helped the burning), BioWare (ok a bit more) move to Linux as well, then we have a serious contender, until then it's still the sidekick OS.

so true Linux is still very limited in all things ...why don't they just charge for Ubuntu and start cooperating with all the paid software so it would be limitless like Microsoft software capabilities , and still give a free version to the lackey pirates out there that want everything for free
